Fundamentalists in the City

Margaret Lamberts Bendroth

Oxford University Press

Organized in 1838, Tremont Temple was the leading downtown Protestant church at the turn of the century. Ardently committed to abolitionism in its early days, the Baptist congregation was organized on a free church model instead of the traditional pew rent system. By the late 19th century, it had developed into a revivalist preaching centers, typical of many other large urban congregations of that time. The members were predominantly young, often single men and women, many of them immigrants from the Canadian Maritimes. Fundamentalism of a particular type took root there, stressing personal piety more than social confrontation and, because of the constant need to generate income through rental of building space, relatively open to strategic compromises.
